Hi Vedasue! I'm new here too.
I've always owned the word Fat, lol, I am what I am!
I too have "failed" myself about a million times too, and I know the feeling.
Commitment is a funny thing isn't it!?
This round I've lost 20 lbs, and I am going to keep getting back on this horse no matter how many times I fall off!
I have two children myself.
We CAN do this, we didn't put it all on in a couple months, and unfortunately it's not going to come off that fast either!
One thing that has helped me alot over the past two months is just allowing myself two "freebie" meals a week. I eat very healthy, mostly vegetarian, low fat foods the rest of the week. Any cravings me or my husband have we just say, "Save it for Saturday!"
Believe in yourself!
I'm still getting used to using this forum, but I'll try to check back in with you!
